Turkey Taco Soup

Fall weather is finally here!  I was looking for a new soup to cook yesterday as it was gray, gloomy and cool.  I came across a recipe from my friend Skinnytaste's site called She is always an inspiration for me and this is my version of her recipe.  It was a hit at my dinner table last night and could be a hit at yours tonight!

This soup is very lowfat and high in fiber, in other words it's healthy!  The taste is absolutley taco-lish-ous!  Is that even a word?  Probably not but it sure describes the flavors of this soup!  This could be made in your slow cooker, just brown the ground turkey, onions and peppers.  Throw it in the slow cooker with all the other ingredients, blend well.  Turn on low and cook for 6-8 hours!

Happy Eating Ya'll!

The Recipe:

Turkey Taco Soup

1 lb. 99% lean ground turkey breast
1 medium sweet onion, chopped
1 red bell pepper, chopped
½ teaspoon ground cumin
½ teaspoon kosher salt
10 oz. can of Original Rotel Tomatoes
2 cups of frozen corn, thawed
1 (15oz) can of kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1 (15oz) can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
1 8oz. can of tomato sauce (low sodium)
1 16oz. can of fat free refried beans
1 packet of taco seasoning (low sodium) plus
2 tablespoons of taco seasoning
3 ½ cups of low sodium chicken stock

In a large soup pot, cook ground turkey over medium low heat, breaking up the meat as it is cooking.  When cooked, add onions and peppers to the pot and cook for 5 minutes or until they begin to soften.  Add all the remaining ingredients to the pot.  Combine well stirring the refried beans into the mixture.  Simmer over low heat for about 1 to 1 ½ hours.  Serve with grated cheese, sour cream or non-fat Greek yogurt, or any toppings or your choice.  I served mine with jalapeno cheese cornbread.

This recipe can be cooked in a slow cooker or crock pot.  Just cook the meat, onions and peppers and then put into the slow cooker with all the other ingredients combining well.  Turn on low and cook for 6-8 hours.
